Hello everybody,

In my requirements there is just "128-bit encryption at a minimum" mentioned about security. And availability five nines.

Question is: should I show in my deployment diagram a firewall ? And if yes, should the firewall have a hot standby?

Thank you.

Yes deployment diagram should show firewall if you do have one. For HA purposes, I personally say have at least 2 of everything.

Hi, Stephan,

What do you think?

I would say HA means more than one of the same, 128-bit encryption most surely means SSL (https:// for the protocol), and a firewall that only allows incoming traffic on certain ports is certainly like a boon in that scenario.

With best regards,

Anton.
